Developing native woodland habitat networks

This note advises land managers how to locate native woodland expansion in order to help to develop habitat networks and deliver Scottish Forestry Strategy targets.

Three methods are set out to help choose areas for native woodland expansion:

  • habitat network plans or strategies agreed by local stakeholders;
  • maps indicating potential native woodland network areas; and
  • guidance for building native woodland networks in other areas.
